Maybe they should just bring back the gallows. A length of rope is way less expensive than a bunch of chemicals. And of course quit with the appeals. Those people cheat the system every time they do that, cheating death (and the victims) just a little longer.
"While some states are trying to abolish the death penalty...my state (Texas) has added an express lane!"
"And of course quit with the appeals."
Exactly. You get ONE appeal. Make it count.

It’s not meant as a deterrent. Some people just simply deserve to die for the crimes they have committed, and can’t be fixed in any capacity. You can’t leave a person who rapes little kids or butchers a family alive and expect them to get any better; they’re broken beyond fixing.

Remember kids: left peddle is the brake, right peddle is the gas. Do not put both feet over the peddles. Put your foot on the left peddle before putting the car into drive. That’s all I have to say here.
(I’m admittedly guilty of accidentally pushing the gas but the truck was in park, and I have a habit of putting my foot on the brake before I put it in gear so that saved me. Still a very vital lesson though.)

He’s not saying we should stop watching it because it has nudity and sex in it. He’s saying we should stop watching it because it has nudity and sex and those things are glorified, along with backstabbing, affairs, and all manner of things sinful. It’s a show you watch BECAUSE there’s smut in it. It’s not like Blade Runner where the movie is about deep questions like the border between human and machine and has a small nude scene because one of the Replicants is posing as a stripper. You’re watching Blade Runner for the story and characters, not for the very brief topless scene. You watch Game of Thrones to see them backstab and have raunchy affairs with one another. It’s a smut filled soap opera with dragons in it.
Actually, I do watch it for the story so STFU. It's probably the best show on TV. If I want to watch sex, I'll watch porn.
So this smut filled show that relies solely on the occasional 10 second bouncing breasts to draw it’s worldwide audience wouldn’t ever have an episode in which two men discuss the deaths of their fathers while on a long boat ride. Nor would they have much of the episode center around a young teenage girl searching for meaning in her life that has been dominated by pain and suffering. Nor would they rely on a major theme that spans the entire series in which disability or more in particular those with disabilities are able to contribute and at times dominate a world in which those considered normal are the majority.
The disclaimer that proceeds episodes that contain nudity might consider adding an additional warning. It might acknowledge that groundbreaking, thought provoking series like Game of Thrones may be challenging to childish adults who can’t see a storyline past a bare ass on screen. People who are unable to acknowledge the brilliance of this show are without a doubt the same folks who stare at the saggy **** of tribal women in National geographic. The article was about the woman’s challenge to find drinkable water. However you just saw ****.
The BLAZE has automatically censored the word "tits" in my post. Haha
I agree totally mewani….in fact my family doesn’t much watch TV at all anymore. It is there and I have the lowest tier cable service (which I should probably just cancel…we’re only using it once every 6 months anyway). I just don’t find much in this day and age worth watching. I didn’t set out for the family not to watch TV, we as individuals each just kind of drifted away in disgust as less and less was anything we wanted to watch (including my teens) and as more and more other options became available. If this is the best of what is on TV I am glad of what our relationship with the TV has become. We play games, we work on whatever work we have to accomplish, we engage in our hobbies, we pick what we want to see from Netflix, we listen to talk radio, we have plenty of DVD’s. We’re not really missing the cable TV much at all…poor neglected thing. Since all of TV anymore is pretty much universally crappy….saying that this show is the best thing out there on TV going doesn’t say a whole lot…..I won’t sledgehammer the TV because it IS hooked to the DVD player which plays decent stuff we WANT to watch on occasion. One of these days I will get around to cancelling the cable TV entirely though.

More specifically the price of EVERYTHING increases because it suddenly takes a lot more money to make a hamburger and an order of fries. When it costs more to do business, that business has to increase the prices of its goods or services to compensate, and if all the businesses have to pay more money to pay their workers then everything gets more expensive and inflation only gets worse. Compare back in the 1980s to now; you made more money working minimum wage then than you do today because in spite of getting a higher amount of money inflation made it moot, and everything got more expensive to compensate.

There’s a huge problem with that; neither one of them will EVER care about their own citizens. Both see their people as a mere means to an end; nothing more. All they care about is power, and they’ll happily side with terrorists and monsters to get it.

Correction: you better hope he doesn’t. If he does it would imply he knows Abbas is no good and is going along with him anyway.

Djinns I think are classified as a higher class of genie. Some are semi-decent and grant wishes but quite a few are demonic in nature.

So he said “May you be an Angel of Peace.” That’s almost as bad as saying he IS an Angel of Peace. The only way he’d ever achieve peace is through murdering every Jew and Christian in Israel and taking it over.
No it isn’t the same.
He is trying to encourage Abbas to “be an Angel of Peace.” Just as he is trying to encourage Castro to care for the poor in his country.
I'm no fan of Abbas, or Castro either.
There's a huge problem with that; neither one of them will EVER care about their own citizens. Both see their people as a mere means to an end; nothing more. All they care about is power, and they'll happily side with terrorists and monsters to get it.
I fundamentally agree with you, but being the Pope it is his duty to try and strive for the ideal, whether or not it is practical.
True. Without victory there can be no peace. And cemeteries are very, very peaceful places. BTW, Lucifer is (was?) an angel.
Remember -- Jesus died for ALL people, not just those who care about others or who are good. The Pope, as a Christian leader, has to try to reach everyone, as Christ asks.
Ignoring the problem doesn't make it go away. Francis has to try.

What harm is it if people mispronounce a few words? It’s called an accent; certain words sound different depending on who speaks them. I’m guilty of saying “I could care less” and you know what? Everybody says that here. It’s a rural area; our speaking patterns are the least of the world’s worries.
But what do you mean when you say "I could care less"? Usually that phrase is used in the context of a topic that you have literally no interest in. So by saying "I could care less" you mean that you have the capability to care even less than you do now. By saying "I couldn't care less" you mean that it is literally not possible for you to care any less than you do currently. One makes sense, the other doesn't.
Just because every redneck in your town speaks incorrectly doesn't mean that you should give up on articulation yourself.
...and what are the COMMI-M.BROTHERHO'O'D/BIGPRO'GO'VERNMENT DOING WITH THE "O'THERHAND"????
But the expression, "I could care less," makes no sense. If you COULD care less, then that means that you still care to some degree.

My lord; is that a unanimous disapproval of that piece of sewer scum?
At least some of us still have a moral compass. Sadly that worm has absolutely none.
Unfortunately I have to agree with you; and sadly all too many people in position of authority or power have the same kind of broken compass as well.
"At least some of us still have a moral compass."
Really? Who are you to judge?
Allow me to play devils advocate for a moment...close to 60 million abortions in the US since Roe V. Wade...that would place the first that were killed in their early 40's now...and it would probably mean another 100 million extra people in the US as of today if their abortions were never carried out.
Now...I swear to Jesus that none were ever done, but where would we be right now with that many more people to feed? How many would be unemployed? In poverty?
If we consider what the average circumstances of their family life would have been (if born), is it safe to assume that the vast majority would have been broken homes? Single parent?
As I've said in the past, I'm in favor of abortion ONLY because I believe they will happen anyway, and I would rather they not be done by quacks in a basement or garage.
But...I can't even contemplate where we'd be financially as a nation right now with another 100 million people added to our population. It boggles the mind.
I'm sure you meant no disrespect to sewer scum. ; )
I suggest Richards set a good example of her ideology, be the first to volunteer to fall on her sword, and abort HERSELF! She is only interested in destroying the lives of other people, at the selfish convenience of people like herself! She's a selfish hypocrite!
These people are NOT pro-CHOICE! If they were pro-choice, they would be in favor of making a CHOICE of their behavior BEFORE they engage in sex. What they really are is pro-ABORTION! And they don't merely dismiss the value of the lives of babies, either. They don't value the lives of people with disabilities or the elderly either! They're really pro-DEATH!
I understand that a lot of women of rape and incest IGNORE the fact that they are pregnant - and some REALLY don't realize that they are (had a friend who was skinny - not underweight who didn't realize she was pregnant until she was over 7 months along - had another friend that KNEW she was pregnant when she had her period every month - she was alway irregular otherwise). BUT - if she's past the 5 month rule - bring the child to term and give it up for adoption if you don't want the child. DON'T play into the Margaret Sanger/Planned Parenthood myth.
Not unanimous, I called her an American hero.

Don’t tempt God please. Even if you think he doesn’t exist it is never wise to mock an omnipotent being. Bad things always happen.
 May 16, 2015 at 7:20pm
They’re trying to be offensive. They’re not all that good at it, and they certainly can’t take it when it’s thrown right back at them.
 May 16, 2015 at 7:17pm
Even a blind man could see that. Why they refer to Christ worshipers as “worshipers of the cross” is beyond me. I guess Jesus isn’t a prophet to them after all. Somebody should inform Imam Chowdery.

Affirmative Action. They have a race quota they need to fill, and lower the requirements to fill it.
How that ever became a thing is beyond me. They might as well call it what it is : a racial profiling quota system, or if you prefer, bureaucratic racism.
Harvard's demographics indicate that Jews benefit from affirmative action there even more than Blacks. Harvard actively discriminates against Whites and Asians only.
I think it became a thing out of excessive and ill-considered niceness. Everyone should have a chance. Just everyone! It's why we have 125 pound female firefighters who can barely lift the hose. We need to adopt Switzerland's system where only around 20% of the best and brightest are allowed into university (no matter what their hue may be).

Nah they have to pay the leftist professors first. You about have to pay an arm and a leg for those fruitcakes.
 May 16, 2015 at 3:03pm
That there is a 300 point divide between white students and colored ones is appalling. Just have one test score requirement for all races, and if they can’t reach that benchmark then they have no business going to that school, race be damned. Besides it’s racist to expect black students to score lower than white students and thus lower the bar specifically so they can get in. It’s a blunt implication that they’re stupid.
I wonder if the scoring to pass tests and classes and to graduate follow the same pattern?
I wonder if Harvard would be willing to just cut to the chase and say "Blacks are just not as intellectually gifted (smart) as the other races....and the only way they can even get into our university is for the university to lower the standards for admission for black applicants."
That is exactly what they believe and what they are saying by their actions....they simply don't have the guts to come out and say it.

You’d figure they’d go after what actually CAUSED the crash, but nah lets put in a new rule. It’ll save more people when another conductor gets drunk and goes twice the speed limit!
Funny how the progs are saying it was caused by a lack of money for a computer system (that can be overridden by the conductor) that was on order to be installed and now they say seat belts are needed too.
Next thing they will want is all the passengers frozen in Carbonite for a ride on a train.
How bout if they just made people pay enough for their tickets so we didn't have to subsidize it or else shut it down.
another CRISIS moment
Sounds god Japster..but you know the progs want to make all of us who will never ride Amtrak to pay for everyone one else who does.
 May 14, 2015 at 11:10pm
In buses, yes. Buses are prone to stopping suddenly and for most of the time you’re sitting down anyway.
With trains though, I’m not so sure. People can walk freely from cart to cart and the train is in full motion most of the time from start to stop, so seatbelts wouldn’t make much of a difference except if the train crashes, and given how trains can’t really leave the rails they’re on unless something bad happens, there’s less likelihood of a crash in general. But I’m neither a physics expert or a train conductor so I don’t really know.
